Rocky Mountain Model Club
The Rocky Mountain Model Club was founded in the spring of 1993 by a group of local modellers who wished to share their interest of the scale plastic model hobby. Initially we met at Tuxedo Park Community Center, but that was soon outgrown and meetings moved to Winston Heights Community Centre. This worked well for many years, but eventually a change was made and meetings moved to our current location: Art Smith Aero Centre / SAIT. However due to recent 2020 events an alternate location is in use.
In December of 2010, the club voted to become a Chapter within the IPMS Canada fold. While a national membership is not required to be a part of the RMMC, we encourage you to support the national organization through being a member.
Our meetings are open to anyone who has a passion for building plastic scale models.
Membership has varied in numbers over the years, but those that are active with the club enjoy the friendship and events that the club participates in. Some of these include open houses at the following: Nanton: Bomber Command Museum of Canada, Calgary: Supertrain, The Hangar Museum, Heritage Park, Olds: Hobby Show, Red Deer: Long weekend Build Gatherings, as well as the various contests around the province.
Our meetings have been adjusted due to Covid.
Join us on the 3rd Sunday of the month at 1:00pm.

The International Plastic Modellers Society is a unique, world-wide organization of hobbyists who enjoy plastic scale modelling, run on a voluntary basis, "by modellers, for modellers".
The Society originated in 1963, when a small group of hobbyists in England met to discuss the hobby and to exchange ideas, news and views. They called their organization the British Plastic Modelling Society.
It wasn't very long before word of the Society made its way to all corners of the world, and, as membership grew, the name was changed to IPMS in order to reflect the new International aspect. The Canadian branch was founded in 1964, and today IPMS Canada is one of the larger branches of the Society. Like all IPMS branches, IPMS Canada is all-volunteer run and maintained.
Since 1995, the RMMC has hosted a model contest for all skill levels and genres of plastic models.
Updates will be made as we near the planned 2021 show. Get building!
